Will our resident expert on matters concerning drinking emporiums. Hoping Adi might help answer my concerns. Will Posh supporters be allowed to drink in Frankies bar, If they are it's supposed to be happy hour from five to seven two drinks for the price of one.

Done my own bit of detective work, ie a phone call to the bar, apparently we are allowed in pre game, I presume there may be a limit on the numbers allowed in, but as it is not a Premier league game it is not home supporters only.

I would assume that our usual crowd will be there. See you either in Frankie's Bar or on the terrace!

He does, he's got the no. 29 shirt.

Unfortunately though, Chapman is in goal.

I usually come on here to read all about it but this morning had to go to https://www.theposh.com/news/2019/janua ... 09-jan-19/

Peterborough United eased into the quarter-finals of the Checkatrade Trophy with a comfortable 3-1 victory against Chelsea under 21s at Stamford Bridge with three goals in ten minutes in the second period sealing the excellent away win.

Siriki Dembele, Ivan Toney and Marcus Maddison were on target for Steve Evans’ men with Lee Tomlin getting 45 minutes in the tank following his move from Cardiff City earlier this week.

Posh: Chapman, Naismith, Tafazolli, Dembele, Reed, Cooke, Ward, Toney, Maddison (sub Godden 88min), Lafferty, Tomlin (sub Cooper 46min). Unused subs: O’Malley, Bennett, Lyon, Stevens.

Half-time: Chelsea U21s 1-0 Peterborough United
Full-time: Chelsea U21s 1-3 Peterborough United

WE WON!!! :clap: :clap:

Pity the poor Burton fans who were held up on the M6 for so long that they missed their team's 9-0 thrashing at the Etihad. Some even turned round and went home. Maybe that was a blessing in disguise.

Had a very pleasant trip down to the 'smoke.' The coach parked up right outside 'Frankies' giving us the shortest walk ever before we in a very welcoming hostelry. It was 'Happy Hour' so beers were consumed at a rate of two to one!
Dmac, Randy and their minder were already ensconced in the pub and several of us had a chat with them, particularly Randy as he spent a long time chatting to Kelly and Chris. They were then joined by Barry Fry and Bob Symns along with a whole group of hangers on before moving on to their luxury boxes!
A great turnout of 400+ Poshies were in the Shed End and were in good voice. The way that they that sectioned off the terrace was ridiculous. We went as close as we could towards the goal but to get back to buy any food or even to go to the toilets involved disturbing row after row of Posh fans, as they wouldn't open up the joining gangways. Goodness knows what would happen if there was a fire!
The first half was entertaining and we had a few reasonable chances, with Tomlin (making his well awaited return debut) Maddison, Dembele and Toney being the most obvious. There was one extra chance that fell to Tafazolli from a corner kick. He did what he often does - outjumps everybody and then has no clue where the goal is and plants the chance wide of the right hand post! How many chances he gets and so often he fails to come up with the goods!
A couple of minutes before half time we were stunned as, right against the run of play, a corner kick for Chelsea was converted by a completely unmarked U21 player!
Tomlin was replaced by Cooper after the break and he made a big difference to the tempo of the team. We were passing the ball constructively in little triangles and mixing this in with a few well meaning long balls that were chased down purposefully by the forwards.
The hard work was rewarded by Streaky Dembele after the hour mark, cutting in from the Chelsea right and planting a great shot into the bottom of the net. This seemed to be a signal for the rest of the team and from that point on we were really very, very, good.
Next it was Maddison's turn to shine crossing well so that Toney only had to side foot the ball home for number two. He then received a delightful pass from Cooke on the right before advancing towards goal, drawing the keeper and finishing the scoring for the evening. Chelsea had a couple of half chances but were thwarted by Chapman and Maddison had another chance, this time trying to chip the keeper.
Maddison, Dembele and Toney will obviously garner most of the plaudits but Cooke, Reed and Cooper were extremely instrumental in the victory. They worked hard and kept the ball on the ground and found the players that were in good attacking positions. It was a shame that Matty Stevens didn't get a chance in the game as he is obviously champing at the bit to get on and prove himself. Evans seems to be doing to him exactly what he has accused others of doing, and that is ignoring the lad. One of the players that I have rated this season, Woodyard, was definitely not missed in this game. Never mind, Evans said that he may change things on Saturday! (He just can't resist 'meddling' with the team!)
It was good to see a familiar face at the end of the game - Zak who often appears when we play in the capital! He must have blue blood!
So, it was back to the proper 'Borough' (not the Brough Boro) before 11.30 with a smile on our faces!

Thanks Ashman, great report.
